Musée d'histoire des sciences

Geneva’s history of science.
The History of Science Museum recounts Geneva’s scientific past and the life of its scientists through old and rare scientific instruments.

The History of Science Museum is located in the lovely Perle du Lac Park on the lake, in the Villa Bartholoni, a neoclassical jewel built in 1830. The museum showcases a collection of ancient scientific instruments from the 17th to the 19th century, formerly owned by Genevan scientists such as de Saussure, Pictet, de la Rive and Colladon, all of which bear witness to scientific breakthroughs. The exhibits help us to better understand the evolution of technical subjects, such as astronomy, microscopy, gnomonics, electricity or meteorology.
